BACKGROUND: Trastuzumab and pertuzumab are approved for the neoadjuvant treatment of human epidermal growth receptor 2 (HER2)-positive breast cancer, but cardiac safety data is limited. We report the cardiac safety of dose-dense doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide (AC) followed by paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab (THP) in the neoadjuvant setting followed by adjuvant trastuzumab-based therapy. METHODS: Fifty-seven patients treated with neoadjuvant dose-dense AC-THP followed by adjuvant trastuzumab-based therapy between September 1, 2013, and March 1, 2015, were identified...

Lapatinib is an orally bioavailable dual inhibitor of the intracellular domain of both the HER2 protein and the epidermal growth factor receptor. This dual inhibitor can effectively prevent the downstream signal transduction initiated by a tyrosine kinase, thereby reducing the proliferation rate of tumor cells. Lapatinib was demonstrated to be beneficial in patients with HER2-positive locally advanced and metastatic breast cancer. We present here a case of interstitial pneumonitis that occurred after lapatinib treatment...

A 50-year old woman noticed left axillary lymph node swelling and presented at our hospital. CNB showed adenocarcinoma( pap-tub, ER+, PgR+, HER2 3+). CT revealed a right lung metastatic nodule and swollen lymph nodes above the left collarbone and left axilla. However, no breast tumor was found at that time. We diagnosed occult breast cancer, TxN3bM1 (lung), Stage IV . FEC(100), paclitaxel, letrozole, anastrozole, exemestane plus trastuzumab, tegafur/uracil plus trastuzumab, and lapatinib plus capecitabine were sequentially administered...

BACKGROUND: Recently, the use of taxane-based regimens before anthracycline-based regimens has been shown to achieve high pathological complete response (pCR) rates in patients with breast cancer. Nanoparticle albumin-bound paclitaxel (nab-PTX) has been reported as highly effective and less toxic compared with Cremophor-based Taxol. This phase II clinical trial evaluated the safety and efficacy of preoperative neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) with nab-PTX followed by an epirubicin plus cyclophosphamide (EC)-based regimen for operable breast cancer...

Background: The neoadjuvant phase III GeparSepto study showed that substituting nab-paclitaxel for standard solvent-based paclitaxel significantly improved the pathologic complete response (pCR) rate achieved with a sequential neoadjuvant chemotherapy regimen of paclitaxel, epirubicin, and cyclophosphamide for high-risk primary breast cancer. Recent trials demonstrated that in HER2+ breast cancer pCR can be increased by using pertuzumab in addition to trastuzumab and chemotherapy. The present analysis focuses on efficacy and safety data from the subset of patients with HER2+ tumors from the GeparSepto trial (n = 396) in comparison to the HER2- cohort...

BACKGROUND: The addition of pertuzumab to neoadjuvant trastuzumab-based chemotherapy improves pathologic complete response rates in HER2-positive breast cancer. However, increased toxicity has been reported with the addition of pertuzumab, and this may differ between various chemotherapy backbone regimens. We evaluated toxicities of pertuzumab when added to either FEC-T (5-fluorouracil, epirubicin, cyclophosphamide, trastuzumab) or weekly paclitaxel, trastuzumab, carboplatin (PTC). METHODS: The TRAIN-2 study is a neoadjuvant randomized controlled trial in stage II and III HER2-positive breast cancer (NCT01996267)...

Human epidermal growth factor receptor 3 (HER3) expression in lung and breast cancers has a negative impact on survival. Patritumab, a human anti-HER3 mAb, has shown anticancer activity in preclinical models. This study examined the safety and pharmacokinetics of patritumab in combination with trastuzumab and paclitaxel in patients with HER2-overexpressing metastatic breast cancer. In this open-label, multicenter, dose-escalation, phase Ib study, patients received patritumab 9 or 18 mg/kg plus trastuzumab and paclitaxel at known tolerated doses...

Trastuzumab is the backbone of HER2-positive early breast cancer (eBC) and metastatic breast cancer (mBC) treatment, but limited data exist as to re-treatment in relapsed patients. In this prospective, single arm, multicenter trial, we assessed efficacy and safety of trastuzumab and taxane combination in Chinese patients with HER2-positive mBC relapsed after prior (neo)adjuvant trastuzumab. Patients with previous (neo)adjuvant trastuzumab treatment for≥9 weeks and a relapse-free interval ≥6 months were assigned to trastuzumab treatment with paclitaxel or docetaxel...

Importance: Efficacious ERBB2 (formerly HER2 or HER2/neu)-directed treatments, in addition to trastuzumab and lapatinib, are needed. Objective: To determine whether neratinib, an irreversible pan-ERBB tyrosine kinase inhibitor, plus paclitaxel improves progression-free survival compared with trastuzumab plus paclitaxel in the first-line treatment of recurrent and/or metastatic ERBB2-positive breast cancer. Design, Setting, and Participants: In the randomized, controlled, open-label NEfERT-T trial conducted from August 2009 to December 2014 at 188 centers in 34 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America, 479 women with previously untreated recurrent and/or metastatic ERBB2-positive breast cancer were randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms (neratinib-paclitaxel [n = 242] or trastuzumab-paclitaxel [n = 237])...

INTRODUCTION: Myocardial strain imaging and blood biomarkers have been proposed as adjuncts to left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) monitoring for the early detection of cardiotoxicity during cancer therapy. We report the results of a preplanned cardiac safety analysis of global longitudinal strain (GLS), and troponin-I (TnI) and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels in the phase II study of paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab (THP) for metastatic HER2-positive breast cancer...

BACKGROUD: Neoadjuvant treatment based on the combination of trastuzumab plus chemotherapy is the standard of care in patients with HER2-positive early or locally advanced breast cancer. The concurrent use of trastuzumab, anthracyclines and taxanes is frequently used in this setting despite the potential cardiotoxicity of both anthracyclines and trastuzumab. However, not much information is available about this chemotherapy scheme. OBJECTIVE: We wanted to evaluate the efficacy and safety profile of the combination of trastuzumab, liposome-encapsulated doxorubicin and paclitaxel as neoadjuvant scheme...

The aim of the present study is to investigate the efficacy and safety of dose-dense (biweekly) carboplatin and paclitaxel as a neoadjuvant treatment for operable breast cancer. Patients with previously untreated breast cancer (stages Ic-III) were treated with four cycles of paclitaxel (175 mg/m(2), intravenous drip, D1) and carboplatin (area under the curve of 5, D1). Patients with HER2+ disease simultaneously received trastuzumab (6 mg/kg initial dose with subsequent doses of 4 mg/kg biweekly). The primary endpoint was a pathologically complete response (pCR)...

BACKGROUND: In metastatic breast cancer, nab-paclitaxel has been shown to significantly increase progression-free survival compared with solvent-based paclitaxel. The GeparSepto (GBG 69) trial assessed whether weekly nab-paclitaxel could increase the proportion of patients achieving pathological complete response compared with weekly solvent-based paclitaxel, both followed by epirubicin plus cyclophosphamide as neoadjuvant treatment. METHOD: In a phase 3 randomised trial, we enrolled patients with previously untreated unilateral or bilateral primary invasive breast cancer and randomly assigned them in a 1:1 ratio using dynamic allocation and Pocock minimisation by breast cancer subtype, Ki67 and SPARC expression...

Along with anthracyclines, taxanes are the most active cytotoxics in breast cancer (BC). Balancing efficacy against toxicity in older patients with reduced physiological reserves and significant comorbidities is both important and difficult. This is especially so given the under-representation of elderly patients in major trials and a consequent lack of evidence for drug, dose and schedule. However, BC is frequent in elderly women, who are a growing proportion of the population. Careful consideration of their care is therefore imperative...

A 51-year-old woman had previously received treatment for breast cancer at another hospital but had refused early and aggressive treatment. Therefore, she was treated with symptomatic therapy. As her disease progressed, the patient wished to receive palliative care, and was transferred to a palliative care hospital. However, based on her general condition, it was determined that aggressive treatment should not be abandoned, and she was referred to our hospital for treatment. During her initial visit, the patient was found to have left breast cancer with chest wall invasion, right breast metastasis, multiple liver and lung metastases, left pleural effusion accompanied by pleural dissemination, and left upper limb edema...

BACKGROUND: We recently showed HER2-positive breast cancers are less likely to respond to neoadjuvant anthracycline chemotherapy. Here, we investigated whether HER2-positive breast cancers responded to sequential neoadjuvant anthracycline followed by paclitaxel plus carboplatin regimen in the absence of trastuzumab. METHODS: Women (n=372) with operable primary breast cancer initially received two cycles of neoadjuvant anthracyclines, the clinical tumor response was assessed, then patients were received four cycles of paclitaxel plus carboplatin regimen...

PURPOSE: Dual human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) targeting can increase pathologic complete response rates (pCRs) to neoadjuvant therapy and improve progression-free survival in metastatic disease. CALGB 40601 examined the impact of dual HER2 blockade consisting of trastuzumab and lapatinib added to paclitaxel, considering tumor and microenvironment molecular features. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with stage II to III HER2-positive breast cancer underwent tumor biopsy followed by random assignment to paclitaxel plus trastuzumab alone (TH) or with the addition of lapatinib (THL) for 16 weeks before surgery...
